Over the first 14 years of Ride For Doug, you have helped to raise over $250,000 for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. This money has supported research, and funded equipment for Muscular Dystrophy patients. You have additionally raised nearly than $40,000 for special projects for Doug himself. (such as the Stair Lift Project in 2016, and towards the vehicle in 2018/2019/2020) Thank you.


Ride For Doug 2021- COVID UPDATE

Please stay tuned for our updated plans for COVID-19. We are trying to hold the ride in the same format as 2020. Our COVID-19 plan page overrides the details in the website. Please read it carefully.


Ride For Doug 2021 is going to look a little bit different. COVID-19 is forcing us to restructure the ride and replace the post ride BBQ with a YouTube Livestream. As a result there is no registration fee for this year’s ride. Instead, we ask you to make a donation to one of the options below. You do not need to provide proof of donation at the ride.

The first donation option is to contribute towards the long term accessible vehicle purchase. We have been collecting for this fund for a couple of years already, but the project is still ongoing. COVID has delated the manufacturers’ release of the vehicle we are planning on buying. It should be available before the end of the year.

The second option is to continue to donate to Muscular Dystrophy Canada – as we have across the years. MDC continues to support valuable research, and provide programs and equipment subsidies for kids like Doug. Both of these options make a real difference in the lives of kids with Muscular Dystrophy.

  • Donate to MDC
  • Give directly to Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Donate to this year’s ride or register as a fundraiser to join us in the fight against Muscular Dystrophy. RFD continues to support this charity.

    These donations are eligible for tax deductions.

  • Donate to Accessible Vehicle Project
  • Accessible vehicles are expensive. It costs approximately $30,000 to $40,000 to modify a vehicle for accessibility. This is on top of the base vehicle cost. Give to the Go Fund Me accessible vehicle fund to directly help Doug get a vehicle that can carry his chair. Click the donate button to learn more details about this project.

    These donations are not tax deductible.
